More about PEPPED Productions’ Founder and CEO, Amy Botes:
Amy Botes has always had a passion for performance and won a coveted place at the highly competitive drama school, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, in 2001. She went on to perform all over the United Kingdom and the United States playing a multitude of leading roles in classics such as “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”. She also gained a place in the acting company at the Royal Shakespeare Company and has worked for a multitude of award-winning Directors such as Marianne Elliot (War Horse) and Rupert Goold (King Charles III & Oliver!).
Amy has also worked for the BBC, Channel 4 and was directed by Oscar-winning Writer and Director, Jane Campion in the feature film ‘Bright Star’. Amy’s training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art gave her the opportunity to work with world-class Voice Coaches: Robert Palmer (one time Voice Coach to Margaret Thatcher) and Ellen Newman (head of Voice at RADA for over 15 years). Whilst working at the RSC, Amy worked with Voice Coach legend, Cicely Berry who has been Voice Coach to the stars for over 40 years (from Sir Laurence Olivier to Judi Dench, there are few theatrical legends Cicely has not worked with). Having had all of this input and having benefited from this priceless experience, Amy is dedicated to giving her clients a world-class and unique service.
Alongside her acting career, Amy has established herself as an Entrepreneur and in 2016 set up PEPPED Productions with a mission to teach acting techniques, to enhance communication skills in a fun and refreshingly new way. She is proud to have established a strong association with the business enablement arm of Natwest and has worked with many different businesses from sole traders to multinationals.
